DCS World free F-104 mod with EFM

Recommended Posts

While the avionics are still based on FC3 aircraft, the new F-104 mod has a dedicated (presently non-clickable) 3d cockpit and a high fidelity EFM (external flight model). It is a work in progress, but it is already very impressive despite some known bugs/limitations. This is a further development of the VSN F-104G that previously used an SFM (simple flight model) and the F-15C cockpit (it still uses the F-15C avionics). To fly it, you need the F-15C or Flaming Cliffs 3 module. I think there are ground attack versions that use the Su-25T, which means you could fly it for 100% no cost.

-HUD functionality via FC3 (F15C/Su25T)
-Radar/"T-Pod" functionality via FC3  (F15C/Su25T)
-working mirrors
-slightly elevated seat-position to match real pilot positioning

known EFM shortcomings:
-acceleration SL to 10kft at about 30% to fast, above 10kft acceleration at about 60% to fast 
-TopSpeeds about 3-10% off depending on altitude 
-drag- and thrust-profile clean/TipTanks/full load-out not 100% accurate
